Jonathan Byrd 1050RB Squat 740 Pull!

Currently working my way down in weight to lift in the 275 class at the XPC Finals. Looking to improve on my all-time best lifts of 1040, 725, and 730lbs. I am also taking on additional online clients for personalized training. Feel free to email me at if you are interested.

We are in the part of the training cycle where its put up or shut up. I have taken the cautious road so far with my gear, and it has been a mistake. I really feel comfortable in my old suit, but nothing about powerlifting is meant to be comfortable. After talking with Brian, I made the switch to my newer suit and just sucked it up. It was the correct call.

Great training day overall. The squat depth will get better, but nothing was crazy high. Everything moved fast and was in solid form, things are shaping up nicely.
